You deserve a strong, healthy and top-notch smile, which is why your dentist, Dr. James Johnson, strongly encourages you to clean and care for your teeth and gums as much as possible. This means you can clean and care for your smile while you’re at work. In fact, doing so can help you have an even better oral health. The good smile habits you can develop at work are:

-Eating a tooth-healthy lunch: Sticking to smile-healthy foods for lunch can help you have stronger and healthier teeth and gums. These foods include fruits, vegetables, protein and dairy products. So, do your best to eat these foods rather than sugary, acidic and high-carbohydrate foods that can harm the smile.

-Brushing your teeth after lunch: This can be an easy task if you keep your toothbrush and toothpaste in your office desk. Brushing your teeth after lunch can remove food particles and bacteria from your smile to help you prevent dental issues and maintain top-notch teeth and gums. So, don’t forget to brush after you eat!

-Sipping on water throughout the day: Water can wash your smile, so do your best to sip on water throughout the day. When you wash the smile by drinking water, you can reduce your chances of suffering dental issues, prevent dry mouth and even improve your breath.
